WHy TuFCOAT? Tufcoat scaffold wrap is a durable sheeting which is heat shrunk to create a continuously bonded skin over the roof and sides of scaffold structures without holes or gaps typical of traditional cladding systems. Tufcoat scaffold wrap is recommended for projects where a high level of environmental containment or weather protection is required. By creating a ‘drum tight’ and tear resistant covering, Tufcoat is able to stand up to the most severe weather conditions, eliminating the problem of detached sheets and emergency repair. Should it be necessary to gain access through sheeting, i.e. for craneage, Tufcoat can be cut open and re-sealed to maintain 100% containment. Tufcoat are an ISO9001 accredited company and a NASC member who supply materials, equipment and training to the construction industry, alternatively a full ‘supply and fix’ service can be provided by our installation teams.
Tufcoat shrink wrap is heat shrunk to the scaffold structure achieving a rigid bonded cover including any projections or extensions. Because it is moulded closely to the structure it creates a perfect silhouette, concealing the project until removed whilst visually more aesthetically pleasing than conventional cladding. Should the shrink-wrap be damaged or punctured by site activity, it is easily repaired with a local ‘patch’. A zipped access door can be easily installed to enable access into the contained area.
The main benefits of using Tufcoat for temporary roofs is that because it is heat shrunk ‘drum tight’ the requirement for an extensive support structure is minimised.
In addition, the installation time is considerably quicker than tin sheeting. Generally you should expect a 40% labour saving on fit and an 80% labour saving on removal when compared to tin sheeting.
The Tufcoat range of films are ideal for creating temporary partitions inside buildings to contain dust and debris from construction activity.
Tufcoat is available in widths up to 12m (40’) and roll lengths up to 50m (164’) which minimises the need to join sections. However, where there is a requirement to seal around obstructions such as pipes and beams, Tufcoat can simply be cut and heat welded back together.

TuFCOAT FLAmE RETARDANT
Tufcoat flame retardant shrink wrap is classified to EN 13501-1:2002 Euro class B. This means it is compliant with Building Regulations and may be used for permanent building installation if required. Tufcoat is the only shrink wrap cladding system to be tested to this European standard which will supersede national standards over the next few years.
Although Tufcoat scaffold cladding is an oil based product, its carbon impact is small as it is 100% recyclable. After it has been removed, it is highly valued by recycling companies due to its purity and subsequently gets turned into plastic products like drainpipes – there really is no excuse for it ending up in landfill sites!

In addition to supplying materials, equipment and training, Tufcoat also provide a ‘fully installed’ service. Our installation teams have a wealth of experience and knowledge which enables them to carry out any project safely and efficiently, night or day. Our teams are experienced in working ‘trackside’, power stations, on bridges and other critical locations.
All our installation team members hold CSCS cards and work to method statements and risk assessments. If the use of MEWPS is required, we can supply personnel with the necessary IPAF qualifications.

in position where it is wrapped around a scaffold tube. The shrink wrap is then heat welded permanently into position, and the Tufclips removed to use again.
Patch tape 100mm wide, high tack adhesive, waterproof tape. Used for repairing small holes and reinforcing the seam or weld where two pieces of scaffold wrap are joined.
Zipped access doors These are taped on to the finished scaffolding cover to enable access underneath.
Tufcoat supply everything required to wrap and encapsulate scaffold structures.
Heat Gun Powered by a cylinder of propane gas, the heat gun is designed to give a tight, consistent finish to the scaffold cladding.

12m x 50m, 190 micron, flame retardant : Used for internal sheeting and partitioning. Tufclips Used to tightly hold the shrink wrap film
TRAINING We provide the necessary support to get your team up and running including an initial training system at your site for up to 4 people. Tufcoat are an ISO9001:2000 accredited company and our training courses is approved by the CITB.
A typical training session includes

A certificate is issued to those who successfully complete the training course to the required standard.
PRODuCTS & SERvICES
DATASHEET: TuFCOAT FLAmE RETARDANT SCAFFOLD CLADDING Tufcoat scaffold sheeting is an Construction grade LDPE film used for applications in harsh environments. Tufcoat is formulated with added UVI, (ultra violet inhibitors), which prevents the film breaking down under sunlight for up to one year and EVA, which prevents the film from becoming brittle at low temperatures.
Tufcoat cladding shrinks in all directions. This ‘biaxial’ shrinkage, even at widths over 10m, means it can be installed in any orientation.
